See Darwin in a new light with our walking audio tour app for Tropical Light.
This free, world-first, city-wide exhibition is connected by a 2.5km self-guided path to wander along with illuminated sculptures by world renowned artist Bruce Munro and artworks by local Darwin artists featured along the way.
You’ll hear about the inspiration behind the artworks and seasonal stories by the Larrakia people celebrating the Tropical Summer. Darwin’s world-class street art is also put in the spotlight.
Featuring 18 recordings or ‘stops’, the app allows listeners to experience the 2.5km arts trail at their own leisure, starting from from the Knuckey Street end of Smith Street Mall and heading through the CBD before completing the self-guided tour at the Darwin Waterfront.
A number of ‘wayfinder’ stickers have also been strategically placed in between the eight illuminated sculptures and Darwin artists’ works to help guide locals and visitors along the exhibition path.
Local Larrakia man Trent Lee was commissioned to design the ‘wayfinder’ stickers, which feature an image of a danggalaba (crocodile), a major totem for the Larrakia people.
When walking the self-guided arts trail, audio tour app users will receive a notification on their smartphone for each new ‘stop’, but also have the ability to manually press play on each of the 18 stops as well.
